I'm sorry... I have 4 kids

I'm sorry... I have 4 kids

I am sitting here, diary in my hand- phone in the other- flicking WEEKS in advance!

My next 'free day is IN JUNE' How is that a- even possible? b- JUNE!!!?

I have been meaning to catch up with one of my friend’s for weeks, no months, now. I love her, I have an amazing time- I love her company but… I have four kids.

I don’t really know how else to describe my hectic schedule other than- with four kids comes so many different unexpected events, occasions and before I know it another week has been and gone and its Sunday again!

Before I had the twins, I was still able to have some sort of social life- now days, it takes me 4 days to call my girlfriends back, 3 months warning to catch up for a coffee and don’t even get me started on planning a night time event- because truth is, at the end of my days I would rather sleep.

Now that the twins are 18 months I have decided to work 4 half days, rather than my previous 3 days in hopes to get on top of my work load AT work, and allow me to be more present at home and god forbid- even have a day OFF on Wednesday!

This is yet to become the case, instead filling even more of my days with work, meaning more unfinished work coming home and more nights on the computer tying up loose ends whilst the kids are in bed so I don't have to do it when they're awake. 

Let me break down just one snippet of my day for you- this morning as I am rushing everyone out the door by 7:30am so we can all get to school and work on time, Ryder pipes up with “Mum, I think my ear is leaking…” Yep, that’s a giant ear infection right there!

So I schedule in a doctor’s appointment and there you have a two-hour chunk out of my day that I just didn’t see coming!

Kai turns around and says 'I broke my school shoes today' so with half an hour to spare I had to duck to the shops to get new shoes. (see the pattern here?) LOL 

Between sports, homework, school drop offs, pick-ups, lunches, uniforms, reading, dinner, nappy changes, naps, grocery shopping, dinners, cleaning, washing, (my actual work) running a business (that is 24/7 mind you) I am left feeling like I am a really crappy friend…

So if it takes me a week to call you back, 3 days to reply to your text and a month to catch up…

I’m sorry!

It’s not you, it’s not me- it’s just that I am so so incredibly busy being ‘mum’.

    Kate
    Kate THE BOD program is not a diet. It sets you up with the tools to continue on after you finish the 12 weeks.This has now become my lifestyle. I love the way I live now and I love the knowledge I have gained from this program especially dietary wise so I can give my kids the best start to life. The recipes, the workouts, the hints and tips... at no stage did I ever get bored or go off track.

  • Sammi
    Sammi Wow.Wow.Wow 😍 By far the best part of any coaches job. The results, the hard work and the dedication that is so clearly shown here. 😵 Sammi had her little girl 2 weeks before the twins were born, and like me suffered with haemorrhaging at 8 weeks pp too. (This is really hard to deal with along with a newborn, surgery and recovery!) However after 4 weeks on my #tbtprogram check out her incredible results. I am so so proud and happy to have helped in some way! 🙏 Way to go mama!!! 😆www.sophieguidolin.com.au/eshop
